British motorbike brand Maeving offers CBT refund for RM1 buyers

Mike Askew


If you like the idea of riding an electric motorcycle but don’t want the added expense of getting your licence, help is at hand courtesy of British e-motorbike maker Maeving. The brand is offering to refund on the cost of Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) with all orders placed during Motorcycle Live, which runs from 19-27 November at the NEC.

The Maeving RM1 is the first electric model to come from the Coventry-based company.   Designed specifically for urban riding, its design has been tailored to suit buyers who have never ridden a motorcycle before. It can be ridden with just a CBT which is valid for two years. After that period, riders will need to take a full motorcycle licence test. 

Unveiled last year at the 2021 Motorcycle Live show, RM1 is priced from £5,995 and has been a sales hit since its introduction. It’s available in single and double battery form with the latter costing £6,990. The latter offers a range of up to 80 miles with a 45mph top speed. The single battery model has a range of 29 miles. Combined, the dual battery model has a capacity of 3.6kWh and costs as little as 27p to fill up on an overnight tariff.

Unlike traditional motorbike manufacturers, Maeving operates with a direct sales model, with buyers ordering via the brand’s website. Repairs and servicing are carried out via a network of approved service providers. 

Retro RM1 comes with two battery options and a riding range of up to 80 miles on a full charge
